“Every girl in the world deserves the chance to pursue her hopes and dreams.” – Hilary Clinton, TEDWomen, Washington D.C., December 8, 2010
Every girl does deserve that chance. My girl deserves that chance. This girl deserves that chance. All of these girls – and these boys; yes, boys too (our liberation requires their liberation, and ours, theirs, as a wise man said yesterday, and so we must care about them, too, even as we extend our hands to our girls, to all girls) – deserve that chance.
It is our job, our work, our responsibility to do whatever we can to help them get it.
(“all which isn’t singing is mere talking” – e.e. cummings) (we really must do so much more than talk. we really, really must sing.)
